First and third party cookies

TNO uses first party and third party cookies. First party cookies are, for example, functional cookies that the website installs and approaches. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and do not store any personal or traceable data. Third party cookies are, for example, cookies from advertisers and / or the social media companies.

TNO uses cookies to:

  • enable functionalities of the website (technical or functional cookies);
  • to analyse the use of the website and to improve the website on that basis (analytical cookies);
  • to collect information about the browsing behaviour of our visitors and to tailor advertisements to the preferences of the website visitors (advertisement cookies). All this for advertising and marketing purposes.

TNO has set the cookie settings to be privacy-friendly so that no permission needs to be asked for the placing of the functional and analytical cookies. This cookie statement therefore contains detailed information about the cookies, pixels and tags that you consent to or do not consent to.

Functional cookies

The placing of technical or functional cookies is necessary for the website to work properly.

Analytical cookies

TNO has concluded a processing agreement with Piwik Pro in which agreements are made to ensure that the processing of personal data by Google is in line with privacy legislation

Embedded content

Some pages of this websites use content that is hosted on other sites. This is called embedded content. Examples are: YouTube and Vimeo videos, podcasts in Soundcloud and Spotify. In a similar way to the social media buttons, these services often use third party cookies.
